One keen Aussie is desperate for the world’s seventh Disneyland to be built across the ditch and we’re totally here for it!
Warren Randall is the Aussie winemaker/businessman/millionaire who wants to bring ‘the happiest place on Earth’ down under.
Chatting about his brilliant idea, Randall told The Advertiser “bringing the happiest place on earth to South Australia could thrust the state onto the world map.”
“It is time we made a statement, a few statements, in our state.”
He reckons McLaren Vale is the spot for the major theme park to sit because it’s “wide, open, flat, next to the beach, next to the ranges, it makes a lot of sense.”
I mean if they have the space, we Kiwis aren’t complaining about it - if it saves us a loooong haul flight, count us in!

Randall owns some land in McLaren Vale and is so determined that he has offered a slice of it to bring Mickey Mouse and his friends to Aussie.
“I would love to make land available for the location to kickstart it. Definitely. Either you sell the land into a consortium or you lease it or you gift it — you find a way,” he said.
Must be nice!
“I would love to make land available for the location to kickstart it.” he said, adding: “I think because we are so close to the beach, the hills and the city, particularly with the two-way Southern Expressway, that makes all the difference.”
“We have the land. We’ve just got to have the will, the desire and the energy to put it together.”
Bringing a Disneyland down under sounds like a bloody good time for all of us kidults who have yet to tick the epic theme park off our bucket lists. Sooo, who do we have to beg to make this a reality?!
